This month’s book is Roy and the Budgie by Roderick Hunt.
Roy’s budgie, Joey, flies out the window. Oops. Roy goes into the woods to look for Joey. Roy doesn’t find his budgie, but he does find an ostrich. Luckily, Roy runs into a zookeeper, who is holding a very familiar budgie. The two trade birds and everyone lives happily ever after.
This is a very short book meant for beginning readers. Cooper thought it was a cute story. She would have liked less ostrich and more budgie, but she was glad that Joey and the ostrich both found their way home. Especially since she saw that Joey had some millet hanging in his cage.
Always be careful with the windows.
